Overview

The Vinci software is software package for engineers, developers to simulate and analyse protocols mainly used in electrical engineering systems. Software was created to be used in substation automation solutions to simulate SCADA, RTU, IED, protection relays, inverters and any other equipment.

Modern user friendly interface with flexible telegram filtering.

Signal list with naming and status indication support up to 5000 tags(variables).

Multi command execution interface.

Measurement graphical charts.

Simulation of multiple Modbus Master addresses.

Customer feedback

We are very satisfied with Elesta software.

For some time we have been looking for a tool that can easily read and write values ​​for the IEC-104 protocol. This can be done very easily with the Elesta software.

The power of the tool is the import of variables, so that we can easily link a description to a variable. Especially the linking of variables and description is a big advantage for us.

Elesta software has accelerated our testing procedure and speed of application development.

We would recommend Elesta software to anyone using the IEC-104 protocol.

I have experienced to monitor IEC-101 communication at Fingrid substations. The IEC-101 monitoring seems to work without problems.

Regarding our total impression on the product, inside our business, the device in exactly what it is expected to be and the price is considered reasonable, when compared to similar products of other vendors, that have been proposed to us. We would highly recommend it to anyone who implements industrial solutions involving the above protocols. The accompanying software is satisfactory and user friendly. The only problem is that an installable linux version is probably not available (it would be most helpful).
